Capcom Unveiled PROJECT RESISTANCE at Tokyo Game Show

Capcom revealed a new game set in the Resident Evil universe during Tokyo Game Show recently, currently called Project Resistance. This game will be an asymmetric online five-person multiplayer game. Four players will be survivors who must work together to outsmart the Mastermind (the fifth player) and escape the experiment. Project Resistance is being developed by Capcom and NeoBards Entertainment using the RE Engine.

In each 4v1 match, one Mastermind player tracks the four Survivors through a network of security cameras, staying one step ahead at every turn to prevent their escape. The Mastermind plots a deadly course by wielding a strategic deck of cards to create dangerous obstacles for the Survivors, such as summoning vicious creatures, setting traps, manipulating the environment, and weaponizing security cameras. He or she can also directly control zombies in play. In addition, Mastermind players can even step into the trench coat of the towering, deadly Tyrant for the first time in franchise history. In turn, the Survivors must cooperatively work together as a team to fend off the Mastermind’s attacks and complete puzzle style mission objectives to escape the map before time runs out. Each Survivor possesses unique skills to help their team overcome the Mastermind’s challenges and survive the sinister experiment.

Project Resistance is being developed for the PC (via Steam), PS4, and Xbox One. RE Ambassadors and Xbox Insider Program members will even be able to have a chance to participate in a closed beta of the game on PS4 and Xbox One. You’ll have to go to the official site and register between September 11-18 and the beta will happen from October 4-7.
